nothin left to do but smile smile smile......

bit of a non-sequitur i know but i think the Europe 72 version is THE SONG to play for non deadheads... not touch, not eyes, not sugar mag or UJB.... i feel like i could play that song for anyone that listens to music and they will at least get a glimmer of what we're IN TO. it ain't psychedelic but it pretty much shows off EVERYTHING ELSE the dead had to offer





Rat in a drain ditch, caught on a limb, you know better but I know him.
Like I told you, what I said, Steal your face right off your head.

Now he's gone, now he's gone, Lord he's gone, he's gone.
Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track
He's gone, gone, nothin's gonna bring him back...He's gone.

Nine mile skid on a ten mile ride, hot as a pistol but cool inside.
Cat on a tin roof, dogs in a pile,
Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile!!!!

Now he's gone, now he's gone Lord he's gone, he's gone.
Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track
He's gone, gone, nothin's gonna bring him back...He's gone.

Goin' where the wind don't blow so strange,
Maybe off on some high cold mountain chain.
Lost one round but the price wasn't anything,
A knife in the back and more of the same.

Same old, rat in a drain ditch, caught on a limb,
You know better but I know him.
Like I told you, what I said,
Steal your face right off your head.

Now he's gone, now he's gone Lord he's gone, he's gone.
Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track
He's gone, gone, nothin's gonna bring him back...He's gone.

Ooh, nothin's gonna bring him back.

Agreed.

For me He's Gone just somehow captured what it was about.

Nothin' left to do...

Hope you have a good one, "He Lives".
